Komandoo Maldives Resort

Getting to Komandoo

Prepare for the scenic journey of a lifetime

The romantic adults-only retreat of Komandoo island resort is a small island paradise of emerald palms, white sands and turquoise lagoons, found in the north of Lhaviyani Atoll, Maldives. Guests travelling to Komandoo should prepare for the scene that will unfold during their 40-minute seaplane transfer from Male’ International Airport (MLE) with TMA (Trans Maldivian Airways).

The much-photographed view of the tiny islands strung across the Indian Ocean is one of the most awe-inspiring sights you can ever hope to behold. The 1,192 islands spanning the Equator are seen in all their glory from the sky and the different shades of blue, turquoise and aquamarine blend seamlessly as the reefs below the surface vary in depth.

The Maldives’ fortunate position means the islands are bestowed with a generous quota of sunshine and can be visited year round.
